Trump has often been criticized for talking tough about the military, but not showing it the same level of respect as past presidents.

Even Mr. Trump, in a rare admission of regret, admitted he goofed by focusing on calls and other business instead of visiting the cemetery upon returning from a trip to France for events marking the end of World War I.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday", the president addressed a range of topics - including the behavior of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta and his appointment of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.

Trump said CNN's White House correspondent was "unbelievably rude to [White House Press Secretary] Sarah Huckabee" during a recent press briefing.

The president has also faced ongoing criticism for not yet visiting United States troops stationed in a war zone, which is something his two most recent predecessors did early on in their tenures.

With regard to the latter, "I think I'm doing a great job".

Wallace said: "But you're seen around the world as a beacon for repression".

"But this is Veterans Day", he said to Trump.

"Chris, I'm calling the fake news is the enemy - it's fake, it's phony", Trump said again. "They made a big deal" of his not going to the Aisne-Marne ceremony, Trump said of the Secret Service.

"Not one paper that I saw wrote it that way", he said. "I ended it because they don't do anything for us, they don't do a damn thing for us".

Interestingly, Wallace went after the President for his stances on the media.

During the stop, Pence spoke on veterans' issues and also met with service members and veterans. "Nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do" he claimed, and attempted to clarify that he did not believe all media is the "enemy", but only outlets which he considers "fake news".

Responding to a question in a wide-ranging interview the US President said, "We are doing really well".

He did not go into detail on what he didn't like.
